One of the reasons I feel so passionate about home performance is that twenty years ago my youngest child came into the world as a beautiful new baby seemingly happy and healthy. Almost right from the start he developed inconsistent periods of labored breathing, gasping and shortness of breath.

Does your home live up to the Home Performance challenge?

TAKE THE HOME QUIZ

  • “We went from needing to keep blankets around all the time to draft free living. Had we not gotten an energy audit, we would've never known and simply lived with the inconvenience for who knows how long.”

  • The services priced out for us were nicely tailored to our house and there were no hard sales pitches. Instead, our BPI GoldStar Contractor armed us with information and we did the choosing. They made it clear that no project was too small, and helped us prioritize.

  • “Upon completion of the energy efficiency work, I noticed that my house was much more comfortable. I can now set my thermostat at a comfortable temperature without worrying about my gas and electric bills!”

  • “We finally had a great winter and are feeling the benefits of the work we did on our home. We were no longer walking on cold floors, it’s obvious heat stays in the house and we’re enjoying the unexpected benefits of a quiet home.”

Incentives & Rebates

ConsumerReports says:

"Watch out for: Fly-by-night companies — 'blow and go' is the industry term — who charge a hefty fee for an audit, promise major upgrades, then disappear.

Choose a contractor certified by the Building Performance Institute. 

They’re required to do an audit before and after any work to guarantee results."
